BB GUNS, WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW!

THE LAW REGARDING AIRSOFT BB GUNS

From 01/10/2007 the laws regarding Airsoft guns have changed for the UK. Under the VCRA Bill 2006 it is illegal to buy or sell an Airsoft gun to anyone under the age of 18 years. Under Section 36 of the V.C.R Act it is a criminal offence to alter the appearance or paint in a colour of an imitation firearm to make it into a realistic firearm.

AGE RESTRICTIONS WHEN BUYING AN AIRSOFT BB GUN

The minimum age you can purchase an Airsoft BB Gun is 18 years.

AGE RESTRICTIONS WHEN BUYING BB PELLETS AND ACCESSORIES

There is no age restriction when buying BB pellets or other accessories. However items such as GAS CANS, CO2 CAPSULES, SMOKE GRENADES and FLASH BANGS may have an 18 years restriction applied.

MINIMUM AGE YOU CAN OWN OR FIRE AN AIRSOFT BB GUNS

There is no age restriction to own or to operate an Airsoft BB Gun. It is within the law for a person that is 18 years or over to purchase a two-tone (non-black) Airsoft BB Gun and gift it to a person that is under the age of 18 years of age to own and operate. So, a parent can buy a two-tone airsoft gun and give it to their child to use or keep regardless of their age. We recommend that an adult should supervise persons under the age of 14 years.

BUYING A TWO-TONE AIRSOFT BB GUN (bright orange, green, blue or clear)

Anyone 18 years of age or over may buy an Airsoft BB Gun without any background checks. If you are buying online you will be required to tick a box to confirm that you are 18 years of age or over. If you are buying from our shop or from our stand at a show we may need to see ID for age confirmation.

BUYING A (RIF) REALISTIC IMITATION FIREARM (black or tan)

Since October 2007 you can only buy a realistic imitation firearm (one that looks like a real gun i.e. black) if you meet one of the following conditions:

– You have a current UKARA membership http://www.ukara.org.uk
– You are a member of a fully insured skirmish site
– You are a member of a properly insured historical re-enactment group or society
– You are a film, television or theatre production company
– You are (or are acting on behalf of) a museum
– You are a Crown Servant in pursuance of your Crown duties

You will be required select one of the above at checkout plus supply relevant information such as a membership number or documentation to confirm you meet the criteria.

If you cannot meet any of these criteria, you can still buy an imitation firearm, one which PRINCIPLE COLOUR is significantly different from that of a real firearm i.e. bright orange, green, blue etc.

 

PAINTING OF GUNS

If you cannot meet any of the above criteria for a RIF, you can still buy an Airsoft BB Gun, one which PRINCIPLE COLOUR is significantly different from that of a real firearm i.e. bright orange, green, blue, clear etc.
